Was it by chance that Welsh Avenue’s standout single “Disco Moon” was reminiscent of the hits by iconic Welsh outfit Manic Street Preachers? Whilst the connection to Welsh Avenue’s experimental Space Pop sound to the Manic’s Britpop Pensive aural magnetism may seem unlikely, the same strikingly soulful capacity was palpable.
Straight from the prelude of the electronically mastered single you sense the amount of passion which went into the orchestration and production of Disco Moon. Using plenty of spatial effects, the single slowly progresses through the slightly extended mix which gives plenty of time for you to slip into the soundscape before the vocals hit. If Disco is known for anything, it’s definitely not ethereally mesmeric vocals contained within the tracks, yet, Welsh Avenue layered the single with his harmoniously hypnotic vocal range; giving you one more reason to fall in love with the sound.
